Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless liquid that fills the hollow spaces (ventricles) surrounding the brain and the spinal cord, as well as between two of the meninges. It provides a mechanical barrier that cushions against shock. CSF is made by tissue called the choroid plexus in the ventricles in the brain.
